Product Description

<About Kintsugi Part>
After carefully joining the broken pieces using urushi (Japanese natural lacquer), finishing with the pure silver powder by sprinkling to decorate the joined parts.
To increase the luster of the silver, the vessel is carefully polished with polishing powder on the fingers at last.
An example of "Gintsugi", where the joined part is covered with pure silver (‘gin’), rather than gold (‘kin’).

<About the Original Vessel>
T
his is Arita porcelain produced in Kyushu around 1980. The pattern is pine, bamboo and plum, signifying hope and determination. Unfortunately, it has been broken at the wholesaler by the earthquake.

Arita town in Saga Prefecture, is the birthplace of Japanese porcelain, which was first produced in the early 1600s when high-quality stones for raw materials of porcelain were found in the area (northwest of Kyushu) and craftsmen from Korea introduced manufacturing techniques.

At first, they made imitations of Chinese porcelain, but from the mid-17th century onward, they gradually began to express Japanese-style patterns. At the same time, China's dynasty changed from Ming to Qing, and porcelain exports declined dramatically. Dutch merchants involved in exports sought alternative porcelain and turned their attention to Arita ware porcelain. Since then, Arita ware has been exported extensively as a status symbol of the European aristocracy.

<Thoughts Behind the Piece>
Wouldn't silver be better than gold? We were waiting for a vessel that would realize that thought. We joined the glamorous feeling of the original sake cup by finishing with pure silver, which represents a more Wabi spirit. Hope you to a peaceful moment with you.

Why don't you spend a mindful time with one-of-a-kind Kintsugi pottery?

May you feel the beauty of the imperfection of Kintsugi.

All materials we use are natural and do not have any risks of toxicity.

The piece comes with a paulownia box, including care advises and a certificate of origin and quality.

How to care for Kintsugi Piece

  • After use, wash the pieces using a soft sponge and food-safe detergent.
  • Rinse them in lukewarm or cool water and completely dry them using a soft dish cloth.
  • Do not soak them in hot or cold water for long periods of time. This may cause the urushi or maki-e lacquer to peel or fracture.
  • The urushi (Japanese lacquer) may break or the maki-e lacquer decoration may peel off if the piece is dropped or if it collides with other hard objects. Please handle these pieces carefully.
  • Do not place these pieces in the microwave or dishwasher.
